His life is about history, believing and experiencing his culture. Rodney was inspired by his Mother, Nestoria Coriz, and his Grandfather, Lupe Pena. The history of how handmade jewelry was artfully created by using handmade tools. Turquoise stones were ground on solid rocks, before motors and machines. Rodney easily grasped his Grandfather Lupe Pena’s history and started to create art from seashell and stones. Rodney craved to learn more and wanted to become a modern artist. He took metalsmithing classes in January of 2002 at the Poeh Cultural Center.
